“So who are we going to see again?” Xander asked.
“Seedy, not so reputable sources say if anyone can get an item smuggled in, he can.” Dawn replied.
“Have you heard the rumors about this town?”
“Could it be worse than Sunnydale?” Dawn asked as they entered the Second Chance restaurant. They took a table for 2 and a waitress handed them each menus.
“Sunnydale was riddled with demons, Haven is just a supernatural nexus of craziness.”
“That’s one way to put it.”
They looked up to see a scruffy man.
Xander froze as he stared at the man.
Dawn looked from Xander up to the man, “I’m sorry, friend is being rude.“
“You, you,“ Xander paused, “how?“
“How me what?” The man smirked as he looked from Xander to Dawn.
“Xander,” Dawn hissed.
“Xander,” the man asked, “Xander Harris?”
“Ye-ah?” Xander replied.
The man held his hand out for Xander to Xander to shake, Xander shook it dumbfounded. “Duke Crocker, you hung out with my brother when we were kids.”
Xander slapped his forehead, duh, how could have forgotten Jesse had a twin.”
“Well, our parents did split when we were young.”
Duke had drinks brought to the table as he joined them. “you know I read up on Sunnydale after I left. The murder rate was higher, but Haven is definitely weirder. So what brings you to town?“
“You actually,“ Dawn replied, “we heard you are really good at finding things.”
“Oh, really? Well, only for good friends.”
